Great restaurant with wonderful ambiance. Pressed tin ceilings, beautiful mahogany booths and woodwork. Had clams casino, classic Caesar salad, cheese ravioli with beef/pork sauce. Unbelievably good.

Main dishes are extremely reasonable, $15-$17.00. Antipasti dishes 10-15, salads 8-13 and pastas 15. Believe me, you can't get a better Italian meal for this price!! And wine was fabulous.
